Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Thank you for such a great welcome and stay. The pods are private, clean and comfortable. The room was quiet despite being quite large, although our room was only half full. Couldn't hear noise from the street.

Great stay
I have stay at The Pod many times when I drop by Sydney. The experiences I have had are always good. The staffs are extremely helpful and friendly and were always there if you need anything. The setting of the hostel is perfect and with privacy within your own sleeping area.
